Feeling connected to others can play a large role in our mental well-being. Having a support system in place is crucial as you journey through recovery or work on your mental health in general. Friends and family are probably the people you turn to when you are having a bad day or struggling with your sobriety. That is why when it comes to social distancing, it can be a challenging and scary feeling as if you are away from your biggest supporters. There are still plenty of options though to feel connected to other people. 

Video Calls

Almost everyone has video called someone before whether through FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or other methods. This is an amazing option to help you connect with those you may have not been able to see lately. This option will probably feel better than a simple phone call because you can see their face, reactions, and their environment. Plan a group video call with all of your favorite people and make it a party!

Join Online Groups or Clubs

We live in an extremely virtual world. One benefit of that is the ability to connect with others online. By joining groups or clubs online, you may find that it is actually incredibly easy to connect with and meet new people. 

Take Virtual Tours With Family or Friends 

There are so many virtual tours online right now. Some amazing museums and historic places that are probably very far away from your home have created virtual tours to help people feel as if they are leaving their homes. Plan an outing with some friends to go explore some virtual tours. Talk with your group as you go so it feels as if you are together. You will be amazed at how connected you feel with your group as you notice things together. 

Feeling connected with our support system is a really important aspect of staying mentally healthy. Feeling isolated can have a lot of negative effects, such as anxiety, stress, or depression. There are many options available to help you feel connected and still socially distance yourself. Whether you want to video chat, take virtual tours, or join an online group, the options are endless. Yet even with all of the options available, you may find yourself struggling. Here at The Guest House, we are ready to step in and help you work through any struggles you may be feeling.
